Wellbeing for You. What does that mean?
For some people it’s an instant turn-off because subconsciously they don’t feel that they should do anything for themselves. That’s partly a society thing – we’ve been brought up in the UK to believe that we should do things for others …usually at the expense of ourselves. Whilst that has never been explicitly said, it is often implied, and we have taken on the implication that doing things for others, looking after others means that we neglect ourselves, that we’re not important.
Contrast this with many of the children we see in today’s culture – even those of parents who do everything for their children at their own expense. Children and teenagers, many seem to have a clear self-assuredness that the world revolves around them.
Your world should revolve around you – after all, it’s your world! There is a big difference between being selfish and being self-centred. It just takes some time to understand which is which.
So, be self-centred (if you can after all these years!) and look after yourself, look after your wellbeing first and foremost and then notice how your world changes around you!
